Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

WN-

Where did you take those photos? I thought you were from Boston and it definitely does not look like that around here. Were you lucky enough to move away from this grey depressing city for the winter?

Nice bike BTW.

WithNail - sweet.

I don't usually like white bikes because I think it's hard to make a good looking white bike but that one is gorgeous.

Jinx, you're right I am lucky enough to be at my parents house in FL right now. I'm only here for the holidays, while I prepare to move to spain for the next 6 months. Then I'll be back in boston. I'm going to take my bike to the local velodrome I'll be posting more pics to make you guys jealous after I go.

absntr, thanks a lot. It's the first time I've been really happy with my bike . . . I'm sure that will change soon. like now, oh yah I want to get those white/black vittoria tires. haha

Two fans, a frying pan, 2 1.5 liter bottles of water. I think it was july, 95 degrees and I wasn't going home without a fan (or two).

WithNail, very nice ride. What kind of tire you have up front?

commander taco. thanks a lot! the tire is a bontranger sport B it's the same one that I originaly put on the bike. The person who sold me the rim gave it to me for really cheap, they're pretty grippy but don't last long if you skid at all.

here is my latest complete fixie. I got the frame from the T-town swap a few months back. it is a matsuri "the track" model. it has a sticker on it saying that it was build by nissan in aug. of 1981. it was brand new. it never even had a seatpost installed. Most of the parts I used were things i had laying around. I am pretty excited about how it turned out (other than the saddle that makes my genitals fall asleep instantly). I keep it colorado so I have something to ride when I visit. chris (isotopesope) managed to find the white nitto stem. its a bit on the short side but the tt is a little too long for me so it makes up the difference.the cranks are supermaxi 110bcd 165 track cranks. I didn't know they ever made 110 bcd track cranks but they came with the frame and they are not road cranks for sure. i have a somec pursuit bike I am building up right now. I will post pictures as soon as its done.

Sugoi! What wheel set/tires? The Nitto stem gives your Matsuri some Úlan. But imaybe if you had bull horns you could use a taller Nitto (as I have on my 1984 Raleigh Technion Trilite SS- converted from Triathlon bike). What do you plan to do for your genitalia in CO ;-) Brooks Pro? Where will you ride in CO? My Raleigh SS made some trips between Lafayette and Boulder. But once I was almost blown off the road by a TDF Peloton! BTW, the Technion currently has a Topeak rack, CygoLite, and Hutchison Pro Elite Gold 700x30 (knobby) tires because I use it to commute in Boston. I'm planning on converting to fixie either a 1987 Raleigh Portage (touring bike) or a 2001 Marin Eldridge Grade. Neither will win any beauty contests- but the Portage will look bizarre ;-)

Winter coat for the DeBernardi. Ditched the rackpad...it got copied locally! Dag.
Now 42x15, skippier. Michelin front tire. Yeah, that's good. Stella is a warm ride these days.
